Golledge, N.R.. 2007 Summary report on the Arthur's Seat rockfall, Edinburgh, February 2007. British Geological Survey, 13pp. (IR/07/033) (Unpublished)Before downloading, please read NORA policies.
This report describes the geological context of a small rockfall event from exposed bedrock faces on the southern side of Arthur’s Seat, near the locality known as Samson’s Ribs approximately two kilometres southeast of Edinburgh city centre. Rockfall from the cliffs resulted in debris lying in the road and some minor damage to a stone wall. Consequently the road was closed until the debris could be removed and an inspection of the slope carried out. The rockfall probably occurred as a result of prolonged and intensive rainfall, combined with strong winds.
